 As I said in my previous email, I would be to happy to see my change  
 reverted when a better fix is committed.  Until then, I think this is  
 still better than leaving many NetBSD users unable to build their  
 desktop packages.
 Again, feel free to revert my change (probably with PKGREVISION bump)  
 if it doesn't break shared-mime-info.
